  • Description


    We're Gregorio & Giada, we chose to live in the countryside about 10 years ago, raising animals: pigs above all, but also chickens, horses, Highlands cows, donkeys, cats and dogs. Over time two children have joined, and now we try to improve our work and sustainable lifestyle.
    We have a small house and a big farm, a lot of woods around us, a river, a village named Pianello under a mountain! We're 15 kilometres from Cagli (PU), and we are about an hour from Urbino, Gubbio, the sea, many places because this place is located in a sort of green heart of Italy!
